Caucasian – Michael is a mix of mostly Irish with some Dutch mixed in. Inga has Swedish and other European roots.
Michael & Inga both have a BFA in Graphic Design.
We’re both designers. Inga freelances; mostly designing for video/media (titles, animations and the occasional logo). Michael works in web design, helping to innovate a few websites in the world.
When did you meet and month/year of marriage:
We met our first year of college, but didn’t start dating seriously until the last couple years there. Inga recognized Michael outside of class and made a point to bump into him! We were married in May, several years after graduating.
We were both raised Christian.
Information on your home/community:
Our home is located on a quiet street that backs up to a bike trail and state park. We’re about a mile away from the lake! It’s a comfortable house with a large yard and plenty of wildlife outdoors.
Number of children:
We currently only have a fur baby, but would love to add more human members to our family.
We have a dog, Aggie. We adopted her at only five months old and fell in love with her instantly – she’s brought so much joy into our lives. Aggie is six now, about 26 lbs. and loves to lounge.
Desired contact with a birth family:
It’s important to us to build a relationship, but only one that you feel comfortable with. We’re happy to work through whatever that might be. We’d like to be open and respectful of everyone’s needs.
In one sentence, why do you want to adopt a child?
Children bring purpose, giggles and wonder to life – we don’t want to miss out on that journey.
